A New Kine.

--It seems that Western folks are famous for new ideas. In a late number of a St. Louis paper we find a novel style of advertisement, as follows: ‘"Engaged--Miss Louise Daily, milliner, to John Mowry, carpenter, both of this city."’ Why not adopt the fashion elsewhere? How popular a newspaper would be among the young misses if it contained a column or so daily of such announcements. There is nothing near so fascinating in births, marriages, or deaths. But what would Mrs. Grundy say!
